It seems the mere mention of Viktor Orbán is enough to get the UK elite's knickers in a twist these days.
I moved back to my ancestral homeland of Hungary nearly five years ago, and in those five years I have been endlessly amused by the way Western media depicts the Hungarian government and Hungary in general. One of the best sources of misinformation is the BBC. Regular readers of this blog know what a huge fan I am of the BBC. In light of this, I present a fourteen-minute Newsnight report about Hungary featured on the venerable media outlet nearly two years ago.
Dishonesty, disinformation, inaccuracy, misrepresentation, hyperbole, vilification, yes, this fourteen-minute report has it all. It's by far the best piece of soft propaganda against Hungary I have had the pleasure of encountering since moving to this country - from the UK oddly enough - in 2015.
The comments section for this video, coupled with the two-to-one ratio of dislikes to likes, informs me that I am not the only individual in the world who considers these fourteen minutes of Establishment catch phrases marinating small morsels of truth utterly laughable and contemptible.
The only redeemable things in the report are the rather lovely shots of Hungarian landmarks interspersed between the snippets of globalists ringing the alarm bells over Orbán's attacks on democracy, the rule of law, the EU, the media, migrants, George Soros, George Soros-funded NGOs, and so forth. Enjoy!
